Proposition 83: Sex Offenders and the November Elections There are 90,000 registered sex offenders in California, and current law says they can't live near schools while they're on parole. If they're high risk, they have to be monitored with electronic devices. The most dangerous can be committed to mental hospitals after serving their prison terms. Governor Schwarzenegger has signed a package of new laws cracking down on such sex offenders. Proposition 83 on November's ballot would be even tougher--so tough it could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. It would increase penalties and provide for longer paroles. Past offenders could never live within 2000 feet of a school or a park and they'd be electronically monitored for the rest of their lives. Supporters say it will make children safer. Opponents contend it won't protect them from the most likely offenders of all: people they know and trust. We hear the pros and cons.
Concern deepens amid Trump's controversies President Trump delivered today's commencement speech to the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. As he praised the accomplishments of the graduates, he listed some of his own… and made reference to reports that he leaked intelligence to the Russians and tried to shut down an FBI Investigation into his associates.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Will the GOP weather the storm with Trump or jump ship? Breitbart news claims that the GOP "establishment" has it's knives out" for President Trump, but Republicans in Congress are mostly supportive… at least in public. We look at whether that's likely to last.
